did not like it

I absolutely hated this book full of Sheryl's arrogance which Is actually an upper class version of feminism she is trying to deliver as being universal to all women. (But, as she is careful to mention only about 100,000 times - some women don't have the desire to have a successful career, while preferring to remain at home, which is ok and valuable and important, as per Sheryl's unnecessary, patronizing, and overemphasized approval.)

This should have been a 2 page article in Oprah magazine rather than a book because the ONLY practical advice for anyone who doesn't have Facebook and Google knocking on her door is to sit at the table even if the conference room is packed. Otherwise, this should be in the autobiography section for anyone who wants to learn about Sheryl's extremely privileged life and career.

The most important thing I will say if you do not want to feel the same as I do here... avoid the audiobook at all costs! Maybe if you read in your own head instead of having to listen to her read this self importance to you then you will feel differently.
